Re: VirtualBox problem with UEFI kernel

Hi fanthom, No I did not change anyting in the uefi-kernel module. You can download...

Re: VirtualBox problem with UEFI kernel

Please download this file . Replace the file in /opt/porteus-scripts/gtk-easy-build If you receive the same error report back. The kernel module is not being built/started. Is this the same script here: http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=117&t=3033#p21300 ? If yes, I have tried it but it did ...

VirtualBox problem with UEFI kernel

Hi, I am trying to use Virtualbox on Porteus v2.1 with uefi-kernel. I have built virtualbox module . When I start vm, virtual box crashes. I get an error like that: http://zarelli.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/vmissue2.png

What might be the problem? I have built module two times, but did not work.

Re: Cannot boot v2.1 x64 from usb

I realized that usb sticks are formatted with fat32. I reformatted the stick with fat. But this time I get boot menu and stuck again. I cannot select anything or boot to porteus.

Re: UEFI problem

Hi, It is not enough to disable secure boot. It needs additional setting; UEFI vs CSM. I have to switch between UEFI and CSM to switch Porteus vs Windows.

UEFI problem

Hello,
Is it possible to boot porteus with other bootloaders which have uefi support instead of syslinux? If yes, how can I do this?

Because of uefi, I need to set bios everytime when I want to switch between Windows and Porteus. This is very annoying.
